Keine Chance für Fingerabdrücke und Schmutz durch
MIROGARD® DARO Bilderverglasung
The difference between anti-reflective picture glazing (right) and SCHOTT MIROGARD® DARO (left) can be seen immediately. Thanks to this durable, anti- reflective coating with oleophobic properties (DARO – left), fingerprints and smudges on picture glazing don’t have a chance compared to an antireflective coating without DARO.

Hot Topic: 

Bye-bye fingerprints and dirt thanks to MIROGARD® DARO picture glazing

Bewährte dauerhafte anti-reflektive Beschichtung mit oleophoben Eigenschaften von SCHOTT nun auch im Kunstbereich erhältlich

Have you experienced this too? Annoying fingerprints and dirt can make paintings look unattractive, dim the enjoyment of art and they are extremely difficult to remove.

SCHOTT now has the answer: The new MIROGRAD® DARO glass offers several advantages thanks to its high-tech coating: this picture framing glass is resistant to fingerprints and water and easy to clean with a soft, damp cloth. The anti-reflective coating has visual reflectance of less than 1% and a very high color rendering index of
Ra = 100 that allows the colors in an artwork to be rendered very naturally.

SCHOTT initially developed the DARO coating for using CONTURAN® DARO glass in larger size displays in public spaces that are subjected to regular and frequent operation by their users. This proven technology is now also available for the world of art. SCHOTT MIROGARD® DARO picture glazing product offers museums, art galleries, private art collections and exhibitions a new way to provide a flawless, undisturbed view of their beautiful paintings, graphics and prints.

The product version SCHOTT MIROGARD® Protect Ultra that has been on the market since June 2015 is also available with the DARO coating and now even offers excellent protection against dirt and fingerprints besides splinter protection, UV protection and its light weight. Long-term durability is thus also achieved with chemical and mechanical stress.
